Poll Question:
As I was riding my Specialized Hard Rock back from lunch this afternoon I got to wondering how many motorcyclists here still ride a bicycle regularly. I typically ride about five miles a day two to three days a week, which would put me at about 500-700 miles a year. I figure anybody who rides a bike more than 1000 miles a year is "hardcore", so I didn't bother going beyond that amount.

I believe that some bicycle skills aid in motorcycle skills, plus a bicycle definitely helps me stay in shape better than a motorcycle.

So how often do you ride a bicycle?

I was also doing well over 1000 miles a year when i started biking 10 years ago and even joined the older age group races.. I havent been biking anywhere near that much in the last couple of years.

Many times i feel the bicycle rides are more rewarding than my motorcycle rides, plus you could get a really nice bicycle for a fraction of a motorcycle's cost.

Living near the lake, I hit the lakeshore trails on my cheapy mountain bike at least once a week running around 400 miles a year and enjoy it very much. I find I tend to see more scenery on the peddle bike than the motorbike but I would guess the leisure factor is better and my route is a pedestrian one which the MC cannot go on. On the other hand the MC takes me well out into the country with the leisure that the mountain bike cannot reach

I spent the last 15 years riding a bicycle as a College cop, I typically did about 1500 miles each year between April and December. Always with a helmet on.
